(AP) President Barack Obama is encouraging Americans to embrace the spirit of Christmas by volunteering at a soup kitchen, buying gifts for kids in need, or organising food and clothing drives.

In his weekly radio and internet address, Obama says the values Jesus taught can spur Americans of all faiths to be better parents, friends, neighbors and citizens.

First lady Michelle Obama says the nation should show gratitude by supporting military members and their families.

The Obamas recorded the Christmas message in Washington before leaving Friday for their annual vacation in Hawaii.
